New Years Pizza

I don't know what your family has as their traditional New Years day feast, but the traditional meal for my family is pork and sauerkraut.  I know several others who eat black eyed peas and cabbage or hog-maw (if you don't know what that is - it's probably for the best... ! :P) each year on New Years day. This year I was on my own for New Years day, so instead of doing the classic feast, I decided to make PIZZA!  Now, I have never made homemade pizza before, and some may argue that it wasn't technically homemade this time since I used a box mix for the dough - but hey, it was homemade to me! :)

I knew that I had one of those Pillsbury crusts in the refrigerator, the kind that all you have to do is roll it out, but check out what I found when I went to get it:ruined pizza doughUnfortunately I didn't have any traditional pizza sauce either, so Plan B: I had a box mix for pizza dough and I improvised with spaghetti sauce in place of the pizza sauce!  As for the toppings, it was a collaboration of a lot of random foods that remained in the refrigerator: green peppers, broccoli, ham, mushrooms, cheddar and American cheeses.  After a dash of basil and Italian seasoning, I threw it in the oven for 10 minutes.

Boy was I pleased to see the end results!  I do not want to brag, but it was pretty tasty to me!  I would even say that it may have been one of the best pizzas that I have ever had!  Scrumptious! :)Piece of my homemade pizzaI will admit, I am pretty happy that there are leftovers, mainly because I am looking forward to eating this pizza again! :)  I may have just created a new traditional New Years day meal for myself!
